In the heat of the summer, there are moments where you just want to say “Take me away, I need a break!” And, that is just what The Look Boutique in Duane Reade at 40 Wall Street did.
Here is my BEFORE picture. This was during the NYC heatwave and it was super hot! I needed a little pampering to get me ready for a night out.
One of the stylists at the salon, Michel, knew exactly what to do with my long curly and frizzy hair. Since it was so humid out, she decided to also curl it so that the blowout would hold better.
All curly and ready to shake it out to give my hair a nice bounce. I’m so happy with the way it turned out!
Next, I was on to the Nail Bar. They have a great selection of essie and OPI polishes. In addition, Siokoey informed me that they can also do trendy nail styles that are oh so popular right now. She even sent me a couple of designs and styles that they can do in addition to regular manicures.
Wearing a dress with many colors, I decided on a more neutral manicure. This is essie Fun in the Gondola.
Now, I was ready for the last Look Boutique touch – makeup. Did you know that with just a purchase of $40 worth of product, you can receive a complimentary makeover? How awesome is that? And, my beauty advisor was so knowledgeable about the products and what would be best on my skin. Brands like Pur Minerals and Cargo are ones that I am going to have to go back and purchase.
I love having my makeup done by someone who knows what she is doing. I am able to then try a new technique and purchase the products to help me create a new look. Once, makeup was complete, I went to change into my new dress from London Times – love it!
Voila! Here is my AFTER photo! You wouldn’t even know it was still over 90 degrees at 6:00 at night. I am ready for a night out!
I highly recommend visiting the Duane Reade Look Boutique at 40 Wall Street. To view each step of my makeover at Duane Reade, check out my Photo Album on Google +. The prices are reasonable and they have a great program where if you purchase 5 blowouts or 5 manicures, you get your next one free. And, isn’t that a great reason to return?!
